Terriers preparing swoop for Campbell

QPR striker DJ CampbellQPR striker DJ Campbell is poised to join Huddersfield as a likely replacement for Jordan Rhodes, who is reportedly on his way to Blackburn Rovers, Sky Sports has revealed.

The Terriers are willing to use the money raised from the potential sale of Rhodes to fund a move for Campbell.

Since his move to Loftus Road last summer, the 30-year-old has endured an injury-blighted time, making just three starts and scoring one goal.

A host of big names are joining the club, and there no longer appears to be a place for DJ Campbell in Mark Hughes’ plans.

Campbell’s availability has sparked interest from a number of clubs, including a move back to Bloomfield Road to join Blackpool.

But the deal was quashed when Ian Holloway admitted that financial constraints would make it almost impossible to re-sign the striker.

Gianfranco Zola has also tried to bring the player to Watford – a move which could still appeal to Campbell due to the club’s closeness to his London home.

Bristol City also reportedly had a bid accepted by QPR, but a move to the John Smith’s Stadium now appears the most likely.
